In recent years, extensive attention has been paid to the decarbonization of petroleum and gas exploration and related technologies at home and broad. The structural transformation of the energy industry of the oil and gas is one of the inevitable ways for China to achieve the “carbon peak and neutrality” targets. Under the prerequisite of energy reform to accelerate the achievement of the targets, the energy reform direction and pathway for the oil and gas technology have been analyzed. Taking the project of the electricity substitution technology in the PetroChina Southwest Oil and Gasfield Company as an example, the changes in terms of environmental pollution and energy consumption before and after the implementation of the project are compared. Then, it focuses on the necessity of the drilling and completion electrification transformation and the advantages of the drilling and completion are emphasized. Based on the analyses and summary of the key and difficulties in the practice process, the key technologies that restrict the development of electricity substitution technology and the breakthrough points of the future researches are put forward, which provides reference for the application of “electricity substitution” technology in oil and gas exploration and development under the “dual-carbon” targets.

Key words: drilling and completion electrification, “electricity substitution” technology, “carbon peak and neutrality” targets, smart power substation, carbon emission
